Inking Clinic: Level-Up with Ombrés and Blend Rolls—Virtual Workshop with Speedball Demo Artist, Susana McDonnell
October 23 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Previous Block Printing Experience Required
Bring your pre-carved block, your inks, tools and a fabric item or paper to print and lets spend two hours learning my signature ombré technique, a method of creating a multi-colored print using a single brayer and plexi and about how to achieve successful blend-rolls or gradients. We will discuss ink ratios and color combinations that work well together and troubleshoot pitfalls and problems.
